    Promised wedding quilt

    Shortly before my dear MIL passed away, she pulled this quilt top out of a drawer and asked me to quilt it when her DGD [my niece] got married. It was appliquéd by her mother many, many years ago. The wedding is the end of July and I just finished quilting the top. It still needs binding and a label. I’ve never had borders come out quite this wavy, but I think I can get it to look a little better. I quilted a quarter daisy in the open area corner of each block. In a few of the corners, though, I quilted little surprises.

    Does anyone recognize this pattern? I’d love to include some pattern information on the label.

    What a wonderful, thoughtful gift! I know she'll love & treasure it! I also know I've seen this pattern before but can't remember the name of it to save my soul. Some sort of basket? Flower Basket? May Basket? Posy Basket?
